Politically Correct Climate Change

Partial Frozen Earth

It is suppose to be politically correct to say climate change when referring to global warming. Hogwash! Everyone knows climate changes so to use climate change interchangeably with global warming is ludicrous.

The Pope, Hillary Clinton, Barrack Obama and many other misinformed individuals think they sound so smart by saying climate change is real. I have very old news for you. Climate has changed since the beginning of time and will never stop changing. Pope Francis said global warming is a threat to humanity and hosted an event with mayors and governors around the world.

    Not surprising the liberal California Governor Jerry Brown, New York Mayor Bill de Blasia along with other like minded global warmers from Asia, Africa and Europe convened. Pope Francis climate change encyclical is a formal Catholic teaching document. However, many climate scientists believe global warming is a hoax or vastly exaggerated. Global warming should affect temperatures and diminish the length of cold winter seasons if in fact climate is changing. Consider. Even Weather Channel Historian Chris Burt stated:

    November 2014 was the coldest November since 2000 for the contiguous U.S.

    The term “Arctic Outbreak” was used frequently by meterologists during the 2013/2014 and 2014/2015 winter seasons. Why? Because of extreme freezing weather conditions that were in fact – widespread. Boston shattered their old record of 107.6″ of snow from 1995/1996 with a new record of 110.6″ for the 2014/2015 winter season. Worchester, Massachusettes past record snowfall was 86.7″ and the 2014/2015 winter demolished that record with 119.7″. And for those foolish enough to say snow does not mean cold, record snow piles were often the result of extended periods of cold temperatures not allowing the snow to melt.

    Collapsing roofs, closed roads including freeways, frozen fountains, astounding over 85% ice coverage on the Great Lakes – a rare two years in a row, freezing temps from the East Coast in November to Denver and Arizona in May. It’s amazing how global warming makes things colder for such a long time isn’t it?

    Climate Change is actually politically incorrect.


    Boston Snowfall Record

    Boston Snowfall Record

    Boston had so much snow this year that if it was told on April 1st it could have been an April’s Fool joke. No kidding. Bostonian’s were so sick of the snow that they were hoping for more so they would have a record to show for it. Funny – and they do, a new record of 108.6 inches.

    The old record was 107.6 inches set in the 1995/1996 winter season. Records have been kept for Boston since 1872 making this their snowiest season in at least 143 years. The National Weather Service reported 2.9 inches of snow fell by 7:00 P.M. on March 15th giving Boston 108.6 inches for the 2014/2015 winter season up to that date.

    Top 5 Snowiest Seasons

    Boston now has a new Top 5 snowiest season list.

        2014/2015 – 108.6″
        1995/1996 – 107.6″
        1993/1994 – 96.3″
        1947/1948 – 89.2″
        2004/2005 – 86.6″

    Now more snow is forecast for Denver and Buffalo Easter egg hunts on Saturday, April 4th. Cold weather and snow just won’t go away or is it global freezing?


    Record Cold Temperatures

    This winter season set thousands of daily record cold temperatures and many record monthly temps. Global Freezing weather was widespread and lasted too long for millions of people. The Great Lakes are finally starting to thaw. Not since the 1970’s has The Great Lakes seen 2 seasons in a row with 85% or more ice cover.

    Even in the Washington D.C. area where many political climate change and global warming enthusiasts reside freezing temperatures ruled the day. In the last week of February a record high number of severe frostbite cases were reported. The hospital’s burn director at MedStar Washington Center said 8 patients were admitted with severe frostbite compared to the just 1 or 2 usual cases for an entire winter season. Interestingly, none of the frostbite victims appeared to be homeless.

    Some cities with the coldest ever recorded February’s with their average temperatures for that month:

    • Buffalo, New York – average 10.9 degrees normally 26.3
    • Syracuse, New York – average 9.0 degrees
    • Binghamton, New York – average 12.2 degrees
    • Ithaca, New York – average 10.2 degrees
    • Rochester, New York – average 12.2 degrees
    • Hartford, Connecticut – average 16.1 degrees
    • Harrisburg, Pennsylvania – average 20.9 degrees
    • Portland, Maine – average 13.8 degrees
    • CARIBOU, MAINE – deserved all caps with an amazing average of 2.5 degrees

    Chicago Cold

    Chicago had its 2nd coldest ever recorded February. The last time the windy city saw a February freeze like this was 140 years ago in 1875. Global warming? Don’t think so.

    Cleveland Cold

    Cleveland broke its all-time record low for February with a 17 below zero temperature on February 20th. The previous February record low was 16 degrees below zero 116 years ago on February 10, 1899.

    Coldest Month For ANY Month On Record

    All these cities set not only coldest ever recorded February’s but also coldest ever recorded month including all months.

    • Buffalo, New York
    • Rochester, New York
    • Syracuse, New York
    • Worcester, Massachusetts
    • Bangor, Maine

    Several cities had old records broke that were 81 years ago from way back in 1934. They include Amheast, Rochester and Syracuse New York. The most amazing is probably Syracuse because the old record low average for the month of February was 12.1 degrees and the new February 2015 record low average was 9.1 degrees. It takes a significant amount of freezing temperatures for an extended amount of time to be 3 degrees below the old average. Take that climate change.

    Did you know snow was so high in Chelmsford Massachusetts that dogs climbed on 7 foot and taller snow mounds next to homes and jumped on roofs. Dogs walking on housetops – interesting and funny.


    Thor Snow, Ice, Freezing Weather

    Winter Storm Thor and its long freezing weather effect created heartbreak and agony. At least 10 people died and hundreds of injuries from coast to coast resulted from Thor.

    Global Freezing will highlight some of the more popular cities and a few smaller ones of a winter storm so massive it would take post after post to cover completely.

    Several cities in Kentucky saw some of the highest snow totals along with hazardous road conditions. A long stretch of I-65 just north of the Tennessee border had dozens of stranded vehicles. Many slept in their cars or trucks. Motels filled up quickly for those fortunate enough to have made it off the interstate in their cars or by walking. Heavy fast falling snowfalls created havoc, large snow totals and snow records. Let’s start with the highest snowfall totals in the south:

    WOW what a list of the extreme widespread nature of Winter Storm Thor. There are many, many more cities that were greatly impacted by snowfalls, freezing cold, steel and rain. Global Freezing will concentrate more on cold temperature records in the next post which are plentiful. There was so much ice and freezing weather late in the season that global warming is petrified.


    Winter Storm Thor Warning

    Winter Storm Thor is in full force coming on the heels of Winter Storm Sparta. Thor is longer lasting than Sparta and most other winter storms. From California to Maine states are being hit with more snow, rain, ice and sleet. California was more welcome to the storm because of draught conditions.

    Winter Storm Warnings

    Winter Storm Warnings, Winter Storm Watches and Winter Weather Advisors have been issued for states across the country. Ice build-up on roads, power lines, and airplanes are creating dangerous conditions and are expected to increase. The reason for the increase is Thor is bringing tons of rain, sleet and snow with dropping temperatures turning many roads to ice. Dense fog is adding to the already hazardous weather.

    A small airplane crashed in Norfolk, Virginia leaving at least two dead. Dense fog was said to be the cause of the tragedy. Significant amounts of ice expected in several north, midwest, eastern and southern states including Georgia, Kentucky and Tennessee.

    This post is a WARNING about the widespread effects of Winter Storm Thor. Please take heed and be safe. Many record breaking cold temperatures will accompany this storm

    Weather facts from Winter Storm Thor coming soon.

    Winter Storm Sparta

    March 2015 has started with more snow, ice and cold from Winter Storm Sparta. The National Weather Service issued a Winter Weather advisory for March 1st through March 3rd.

    On March 1st an amazing 48 states had snow on the ground including Alaska and Hawaii. North Carolina, Oklahoma, Missouri and several other states reported treacherous road conditions with ice causing a slew of accidents. Many injuries and deaths are still resulting in the constant onslaught of this hazardous winter weather.

    A large pileup of vehicles on I-44 in Missouri caused a major road closure and a tracter trailer overturned in Phelps County carrying hazardous materials. Winter Storm Sparta is being blamed for at least 7 deaths with multiple deaths reported in Missouri and Pennsylvania.

    More record cold temperatures are being set in March with Poughkeepsie, New York feeling a freezing 1 degree on March 1st.

    Inclement weather caused almost 500 flights to be canceled out of DFW International Airport. Over 4500 people were reported to be stranded with most sleeping at the airport hoping for renewed flights. Over 8,000 flights were either canceled or delayed nationwide. The widespread global freezing effect of Sparta covered approximately 2,000 miles.

    Some snow totals from Winter Storm Sparta:

    Arkansas

    • Odell – 4″

    Illinois

    • Ogden – 9.7″
    • Springfield – 8.1″

    Indiana

    • Middletown – 8.5″
    • Indianapolis – 7.8″

    New Mexico

    • Wagon Mound – 12″
    • Albuquerque – 9.6″
    • Pecos – 6″

    Oklahoma

    • Skiatook – 8″

    Ohio

    • St. Marys – 8″
    • Dayton – 4.9″

    Pennsylvania

    • Sarver – 5.3″
    • New Castle – 4″

    Tell global warming that approximately 63% of the United States had snow cover on March 1st. Also tell climate change that Winter Storm Sparta added 2.1 inches of snow to Boston. This brings Boston’s snow total to over 104 inches as of March 2nd meaning the city only needs about 3.5 inches to top its all-time record of 107.6 inches.

    Boston could break the record this week with more snow on the way and winter storms. Yes, plural stormS.


    Winter Storm Remus

    Winter Storm Remus came on the heels of Winter Storm Quantum which came on the heels of Winter Storm Pandera which came on the heels of – well, you get the picture. Six straight winter storms with little end in site. States of Emergency were called for even the deep south in Alabama, Georgia, North Carolina and South Carolina.

    On I-65 in northern Alabama several people spent the night in their vehicles. The stranded were hit so hard that the National Guard was brought in to help. Thunder snow was reported near Waco, Texas along with dangerous ice and sleet on roads in several cities throughout the south and east. Some Texas and Arkansas snow totals:

    Texas

    • Domino – 7″
    • Longview – 7″

    Arkansas

    • Chidester – 7″
    • Rison – 7″


    Little Rock, Arkansas received 47.7 inches of snow from January 1, 2010 to February 25, 2015. In just over five years Little Rock had more snow than their previous twenty year total of 45.6 inches. Other southern totals:

    Alabama

    • Guin – 12.7″
    • Huntsville – 8.2″

    Georgia

    • Ringgold – 9″
    • Oakman – 9″
    • Stephensville – 9″
    • Trenton – 7″
    • Indian Springs – 6.1″

    Mississippi

    • Furrs – 10″
    • Tremont – 10″
    • Tupelo – 7.3″

    Tennessee

    • Coker Creek – 10″
    • Red Bank – 8″
    • Signal Mountain – 8″
    • Chattanooga – 7″

    Sections of East Tennessee had up to 9 inches of snow. A man was killed when struck by a salt truck in Tennessee. Winter Storm Remus claimed at least seven lives. Even Louisiana reported up to 4 inches of snow in Bossier City. Pine Mountain, South Carolina registered 5.3 inches. More snow:

    Virginia

    • Franklin – 8″
    • Farmville – 8″

    Some other areas of Virginia had 9 inches of snow. Vienna, Maryland had 7 inches of snow. North Carolina had some quarter of a million households and businesses without power. Black ice, power lines down, snow and cold had a devastating effect on much of the southern and eastern U.S.A. from Remus.

    Millions wish global warming were true. How about Global Freezing?

    Records abound in this cold, snowy winter with Providence, Rhode Island setting a February record of 31.8 inches of snow. And then there is Boston, Chicago and Detroit with earth shattering winter season records. The rest of the story will continue.

     

    Winter Storm Quantum

    Winter Storm Quantum came right on the tail end of Winter Storm Pandora with more of the same. On Sunday February 22nd, The Weather Channel said temperatures would be ten to thirty degrees below average in a widespread area. Ice accumulations formed in several states making for very dangerous driving conditions. The deep south was impacted including the states of Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi and Texas.

    Colorado Snow

    Colorado received a Quantum snow amount that is a boom to the ski business and dangerous for travelers on the road. Then again Colorado citizens are used to amazing snow totals like these except for the Wolf Creek Pass Ski area:

    • Wolf Creek Pass Ski area – 39″
    • Westcliffe – 26″
    • Telluride – 25″
    • Valleciti – 24.3″
    • Eldorado Springs – 23.5″
    • Silverton – 20″
    • Durango – 18″
    • Boulder – 14.9″
    • Denver International Airport – 10.5″
    • Colorado Springs 10.5″

    The widespread snow, frigid temperatures, ice and wind conditions put a freeze on the hesteria of global warming. Here are some more snow totals with keeping in mind it is not all inclusive of the far reaching effects of global cooling.

    New Mexico

    • Red River Ski area – 24″
    • Angel Fire Ski area – 19″

    • Little Compton – 4.5″
    • Saunderstown – 4.5″

    Georgia

    • Clayton – 4.3″
    • Lakemont – 4″

    So much widespread snow, ice and freezing weather defies global warming and climate change. Climate changes alright. The Great Lakes are over 83% frozen for the second year in a row which is a huge increase in global freezing conditions and a rare event. All this and now three more Winter Storms – Winter Storm Remus, Winter Storm Sparta and Winter Storm Thor. Global warming? Ha Ha Ha.

     

    Pandora-Quantum Double Wammy

    Winter Storm Pandora and Winter Storm Quantum hit millions with a double wammy. First it was Pandora which came into its own on Wednesday February 20th and diminished late Saturday February 23rd and then came Quantum.

    Both winter storms created havoc weather with ice, snow, sleet and cold temperatures. Washington D.C. broke a record for the day with 8.9 inches of snow. Here are some other snow accumulations for Pandora.

    Record Cold

    Record cold temperatures and record snow totals have put a freeze on global warming. Hundreds of daily low temp records were broken in just a three day period. The following records are a sample from some of the more popular cities all broken on February 20th.

    Cleveland, Ohio broke their all-time low temperature record for the entire month of February on February 20th. The previous record was 16 below zero on February 10, 1899 – over 116 years ago. Cleveland, Ohio’s new record is 17 below zero.

    • Detroit, Mi – 12 below zero
    • Cincinatti, Oh – 12 below zero
    • Lynchburg, Va – 11 below zero “all-time record low for any day with records going back 122 years to 1893″
    • Pittsburg, Pa – 9 below zero
    • New York, N.Y. – 2 degrees above zero
    • Washington D.C. – 5 degrees above zero
    • Charlotte, N.C. – 7 degrees above zero
    • Atlanta, Ga – 16 degrees above zero
    • Jacksonville, Fl – 24 degrees above zero
    • Orlando, Fl – 33 degrees above zero

    This is a quality video on the record cold for the third week of February.

    http://youtu.be/UmefPeeZO9k

    Scores of other new all-time record lows are now in the books including Flint, Michigan. Flint had a low temperature record of 21 degrees below zero on February 18, 1929. The new record for February 18th is 25 below zero and also tied the record low for any day in Flint.

    Holland, Michigan has a new low temperature record of 11 below zero for the day of February 20th breaking the old record of 8 below from 1966. Grand Rapids, Michigan tied the low temperature record of 13 below zero for the day of February 18th. Other amazing record lows in Michigan:

    • Roscommon – 39 below zero
    • Rudyard – 37 below zero
    • Pellston – 34 below zero
    • Grayling – 32 below zero

    Erie, Pennsylvania tied its previous all-time record low of 18 degrees below zero from January 19, 1994. The tied low temp came February 16th.

    Jamestown, New York set an all-time record low of a staggering 31 degrees below zero on February 17th. Chicago is having its coldest February since 1875.
